In Others’ Words: Start
Monday is a great day for beginning, isn’t it?
Sure, I may drag some things to do over from last week — but I play a little mental mind game with myself as I look at a brand new To Do list. I’m not confronting last week’s leftovers. Nope. I’m taking on a brand new list.
But if I’m honest with myself — and with all of you — there are items on my list that have been there for weeks. From Monday to Friday (and repeat, repeat, repeat), I’m determined to get whatever it is done.
And then I don’t.
Does that undone thing disappear? Does someone come along and do it for me? Hardly. And here’s the hard truth: The longer I put it off, the less likely it is that I’m ever going to do it.
It’s Monday. And today, I’m going to tackle one “never started” task. Just one. I’ll even tell you what it is: I am going to take on one of my “hotspots” — one of the places where the papers pile up to a teeter-tottering mass of what’s-in-there-anyway? (I have several to choose from.)
In Your Words: Happy Monday — a day of beginnings! What never-started-longest-to-finish task will you conquer today?
I’m visiting over at K. Dawn Byrd’s blog today, talking about the beginnings of Wish You Were Here and what’s next — Catch a Falling Star, which releases next spring.0 I like this!
